Oh dear. I seem to have neglected this blog over the past few months. I guess my life has revolved far more around archaeology lately than baking...but not the fun, blog-worthy kind of archaeology, with travel and adventure and whips and fedoras-- but the mind-numbing, excruciatingly boring tasks of proposals, report writing, artifact cataloging, and endless meetings via conference call. Well, such is the field of archaeology I suppose. But it would not be worth writing about.
But really, not much has changed, except that I have, finally, officially and unceremoniously been booted from my graduate program. I am not sad about this. I still enjoy my job, most of the time. I still dislike Los Angeles but try to make the most of living here. I travel as much as possible.
Me being a dork and scouring the ground for artifacts at Montana de Oro SP (while on vacation...I cannot turn off my inner archaeologist)
I went home to the Midwest for Christmas and everything was coated in 1/2 inch of ice. It made me appreciate California all that much more. I complain about this state a lot, but it's January 18 and it's 79 degrees and sunny outside. Not bad.
So bear with me for a few days while I regroup, bake some cookies, and get back on track.
